Sterling Cabernet Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2006 Sterling Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep ruby color and rich, expressive aromas of spicy black cherry and briary blackberry, with subtle hints of cedar and mocha. The mouthfilling flavors of ripe black and red fruits, laced with clove and allspice, persist through the lengthy finish. Silky, ripe tannins structure the wine and contribute to the plush texture on the palate. Toasty oak, from 14 months of barrel-aging, add warm tones to the aromas and flavors. This Cabernet Sauvignon?s smooth, inviting flavors taste delicious with grilled lamb chops, with rosemary and garlic mashed potatoes or steak with a green peppercorn sauce. You?ll find roast duck with a black cherry sauce, lightly spiced with clove, magically repeats the wine?s flavors. Use your imagination; if you like the pairing, it works.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
